I know we are just getting to know each other but sadly, I will not be around for the next two weeks. Why? CAUSE I’M GOING TO THAILAND! I am so excited that I look like a 5 year old kid at Christmas.
To truly honor the spirit of this epic trip (not to mention my first vacay in two years), I have decided it should be internet free. Yes, this is making my palms sweat a little. No, I would never leave you without a parting gift.
Since I’ve already spoken of my love for both Atlas Sound and Panda Bear, what better way to leave you then with these two forces COMBINED?! “Walkabout” is on Atlas Sound’s new album Logos but Bradford Cox previously released it over the summer. If you read the extensive and utterly charming interview that Pitchfork posted this week, Cox goes through the album track by track and discusses “Walkabout” at length and said he created this song with the listener’s happiness in mind.
Whenever “Walkabout” is playing, I do, in fact, find it literally impossible to be unhappy. Therefore, even though it’s not necessarily a “new” tune, it really captures the spirit of how I’m feeling today on the verge of an adventure. Plus, it’s one of my favorite songs of the whole year. I hope you enjoy and I’ll get back to posting as soon as I return.
[Ed. Note: We’ll miss you Lindsay!!!!!!!]
